Price: $495.00
Pros: 4 bands, remote head option, 6 dual channel memory sets accessed from the head, 5-50 watts
Cons: expensive, more functions than needed, not rugged, feature set-up is cumbersome.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This is a great radio for the radio operator who wants it all, with few compromises. With the option to operate on the 10m, 6m, 2m, and 70cm bands, it's hard to beat this radio for small and versatility. This radio is great for functioning within several different groups spread over different bands.

This radio shouldn't even be considered by operators that will do little more than talk over the air. It's not worth the money and features for the casual user. Also note that, as a ham radio unit, you will need a FCC license to operate with this radio (and an upgraded license to use 10m at all).

Price: $500.00
Pros: very wide range of tx/rx, detachable faceplate let's you install the radio in the rear near the antenna, even in the trunk of my car in vegas it didn't over heat.
Cons: typical yaesu menu junk, bit of a pain in the ass, solved with "nifty manuals"
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I strongly reccomend this radio, it takes a little bit of effort to get used to the menus, like any yaesu but once you do it's 50 watts of goodness. Mod is fairly simple to perform and allows a very wide band of tx and rx options.

Throw away your cb's and get yourself a ham radio, it's a game changer for communications

Price: $365.00
Pros: Cross band repeat, Four bands, Dual VFO's, Detatchable face, tons of memories, and good power output.
Cons: Cost? FM mode only
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Great radio! I have had one in my pickup for 9 months now. Easy to operate and loaded with features including my favorite......"Crossband Repeat" I have only used 2/6/70 bands since I have yet to upgrade to "General Class"

I like this radio so much, I plan to buy 4 more for a second radio at home, the RV, Wifes car, and Jeep.
